the problem

Access to healthcare in rural Sierra Leone is limited due to geographic and economic barriers. As a result, many children are born in primitive conditions with limited prenatal care

the solution

Africa Uplifted built and subsidizes a community health center in Manonkoh, Sierra Leone which has served as a birthing center for over 400 children.
